Joyce was recommended by her family doctor to attend REJUV+ classes at the Academy of Aging, after telling her doctor that her family was concerned about her memory loss since her husband’s passing.
The Academy of Aging is a Canadian non-profit society with affiliation at The Manor Villages. It is this group that is determined to have non-genetic memory loss with aging recognized as being preventable; provided it is treated early.
Joyce learned that as her body ages, so does her brain. Since our brain controls most of our bodily functions, some decline can be expected, however, when it progresses beyond forgetting where we placed our keys, our daily living becomes significantly disrupted.
Just like cardiovascular diseases such as dementia, obesity, hypertension, type 2 diabetes anxiety & depression, some auto-immune diseases, and even some cancers; our brain responds to our lifestyle.
